Prison Sentence for Manslaughter

Ryan Doyon, 29, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for one count of Manslaughter with a Firearm and four counts of Discharging a Firearm in Public. Doyon was found guilty following a trial in Lee County in July.

The crime happened in Cape Coral in 2017. The defendant chased down a man who had knocked on his door and started shooting at him in a residential neighborhood at about 9:30 a.m. The victim was hit twice by bullets. The Cape Coral Police Department responded swiftly to the scene but the victim had already succumbed to the gunshot wounds.

Doyon has a pending case for allegedly stalking an employee of the Cape Coral Police Department.

Assistant State Attorney Andreas Gardiner and Assistant State Attorney Sara Miller, both of our Homicide Unit, prosecuted the case.
